    D11 Text Engine - Show stopper

    Martin Schaefer Level 1
      D11 for me is a complete "no go", as long as the following isn't fixed:

      1. I don't seem to get text kerning to work at all!!!
      2. Many fonts don't render anti-aliased in text editor
      3. Text not changed on stage while editing in text editor
      4. Rotate text to say 30° and watch it on stage *sigh*
      5. Standard Anti-Alias setting "Auto" leaves many fonts
      completely un-aliased. (have to manually change to "subpixel all").

      (using D11, Windows XP 32bit)

      I doubt, developers will accept this text engine in its current state.

      Cheers,
      Martin

          That's no all. Try rotating an image... the same lack of anti aliasing happens on images, but if it has a filter effect added the effect is properly anti aliased - go figure.

          ** edit **
          - ok, so the lesson is don't try glows when testing for antialiasing... I set up a sprite rotation animation, and the image and glow effect both were NOT antialiased... doesn't Flash allow for smooth, anti-aliased image animation?... I would have expected that sort of addition to the D11 engine.

            Script editor doesn't display some fonts properly either.
            I normally use Lucida Console -- it's blocky and unreadable.
